Governor Rick Perry spent the weekend holding a summit for conservative bloggers and social-media types. It included a trip to the gun range, because Rick Perry is a Texan, dammit, and you'll pry his firearms from his cold, dead etc. etc.
We know bupkis about guns, but the Come and Get It blog notes that in the above video, Perry sure seems to be waving around a presumably loaded pistol pretty casually.
There's a longer video on Pajamas TV, including one blogger saying "We have the coolest governor ever" and Perry letting everyone know that the ladies always shoot best, who'da thunk it.
The pressure is now on Kay Bailey Hutchison to top this. We can only suggest she takes bloggers to go after The Most Dangerous Game.
